Changed traffic conditions – Church Street reconstruction, Burrawang

29 August, 2017

Wingecarribee Shire Council wishes to advise that Council work crews will be undertaking a major road reconstruction of Church Street in Burrawang starting Monday 4 September 2017.

The work will include a full pavement reconstruction and sealing of Church Street for a distance of 570 metres from the intersection with the Illawarra Highway.

Additional works will include the installation of a safety guardrail for a distance of approximately 90 metres.

To allow for the upgrade two mature non-endangered trees and some minor shrubs will require removal.

On completion, these works will improve the ride quality and provide a safer driving surface for motorists.

To minimise disruptions and to improve safety of workers, one lane of Church Street will be closed for the duration of the eight-week project.

Entry to Church Street via the Illawarra Highway will be subsequently closed to vehicular traffic during construction hours.  School buses will be exempt.  Motorists are advised to use the alternative route via Station Street.  Traffic will however be able to exit Church Street to the Illawarra Highway under traffic control.

Signage will be erected advising motorists of the works and detour routes.  Traffic controllers will also be stationed on site during construction.

Road users and pedestrians are cautioned to follow the changed traffic conditions, exercise care when traveling through the work zones and be aware of heavy machinery and loose stones in the work area.

Works are scheduled to be completed late October 2017.  All timeframes are subject to weather conditions.

Council thanks motorists in advance for their cooperation and apologises for any temporary delays or inconvenience.

For further information contact Romi Malla from Council’s Infrastructure Services Branch on 4868 0570.

The $519,000 upgrade of Church Street is being funded via Council’s Special Rate Variation (SRV) program.
